Update on the beating

with 7 comments

I got a letter from the polizei yesterday. They want me to go and look at some photos to see if I can identify the fellow who did me over. This fills me with dread. I think I can identify him, I can hold the memory of what he looked like in my head for a few seconds, but I was a bit busy shileding my head from the punches and kicks to notice too much. I’ll go to see the cops tomorrow, so, Fingers crossed, it’ll be like seeing the face of Killer Bob off Twin Peaks and I’ll get it right.

  2. I had to do that once and didn’t stand a chance. A different haircut or a beard (or none) is enough to make me get insecure. I guess there’s no other way, but I found it very hard.

    Good luck. If they have him there already, he won’t ’cause any more trouble if you recognized him.

  3. Thanks chaps.
    I’m trying to visualise him in my head as completely as possible now so I’ll hopefully have a better chance.

  4. My fingers are metaphorically crossed for you.

    Plus, in the long run, peace and non-violence will always, always win.

  6. What? When? How did it happen? Have you been beaten up? I’m appalled! I send you a big hug and wish you good luck – go get ‘em!

  7. I had to do that once, after I witnessed a mugging. It was really difficult; after looking through three ringbinders’ worth of police pictures, the disillusioned, drug-addled, educationally low-attaining, socially disadvantaged youth of my small Midlands town all began to look the same. I thought about Cesare Lombroso and shuddered.

    Hope you have better luck Craig.
